The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces launched an arrest campaign in the northeastern province of Raqqa, claiming capture of 8 Islamic State militants, the media office said Tuesday.
Under the name of "revenge for the martyrs of Raqqa", which was launched by the SDF a few days ago in the region, the media office of the Kurdish-led group said.
A joint force from the SDF and Asayish managed to arrest 8 members of the "Islamic State" cells, including two Sharia jurists, during the operation in Raqqa and Tabqa cities.
Last Wednesday, the SDF launched a security campaign against the ISIS cells in Raqqa city and its countryside, which led to the arrest of more than 200 people, including women and the elderly, and three civilians were wounded by "SDF" bullets during raids in the southern countryside of Raqqa.
The SDF media office confirmed that the campaign is still ongoing to eradicate all of the group's sleeper cells in the eastern region, especially since it announced on Monday night the imposition of a curfew in Raqqa, which began on Tuesday from 6 am until 8 pm.
